Overall this is a good seasonal job, can get very hectic given it's a tourist hotspot so you'll get ALL types of customers. Shifts are long and usually not flexible, but it is a nice place to work, you'll see animals on your way to work
Points positifs
Management is nice and friendly for the most part, great reciprocal program, free entries
Points négatifs
Tourist attraction therefore the stores are, for the most part, always very hectic. Lots of loud kids can get quite irritating. Diversity could be improved, half of the staff are caucasian

Great place to work. Positive environment. Management is accomodating and helpful. Only downfall is contract work and advancement is hard due to others having years seniority over new staff and you d not always get full hours so second job needed to make ends meet.
Points positifs
Relaxing atmosphere. Kind management
Points négatifs
Contract short term work

It is fun to work with the animals and caring staff, the grounds provide a relaxing backdrop to any stresses in the day, it is a very adventurous job with lots of work outdoors

I recently did my Veterinary Technician Co-op with the Toronto Zoo. I loved every moment of it. The staff are all lovely, helpful, knowledgeable and above all, they care very deeply about what they do. The animals get the greatest of care, from food preparation to finding new enrichment, there is always work being done and something to learn.

I loved every second of working at the zoo. I was only there for a summer but it was the best summer of my life. Management was helpful and respectful, other staff were kind and inviting. The whole experiences sticks out to me as one of the best jobs I’ve ever had.

You'll definitely get your 40hrs. And if you're lucky you'll meet really great people to work with, because having friends will make all the other less than stellar management and work worth it. Comfort in solidarity. It was a good way to make money, but my last summer there, I had enough and quit early. They tried to convince me to stay, but I had some dignity. There's a lot I'm willing to put up with, but degrading and incompetent management (not to mention the CFO of the company at the time)...well, I didn't need any more money. Point is, it's find if you have some support, there were some great people in my department and there was a yearly $1 raise incentive for every summer you came back.
Points positifs
Steady Hours, Could meet some cool people
Points négatifs
Everything else

I thoroughly enjoyed my time working at the Toronto zoo, I remained friends with many of my coworkers and they were lovely company it made the job a lot of fun. They took a chance on a high school kid and I am really grateful for the opportunity I would recommend applying for anyone in high school. Hours are flexible and fair and the salary was good.

Would love to have worked here full time. While there is no conspicuous oath from volunteering to employment opportunity, it is non the less a great place to gain experience in working with animals and people that love them

A great environment with amazing individuals. Job itself allows you to grow as a person, develop people skills, and is highly enjoyable, Hours are however unreliable and tend to be draining during peak season. Sometimes unpleasant to work under bad weather conditions.
Points positifs
Free admission and deals to attractions in Toronto, Fun environment, Laid-back co-workers
Points négatifs
Unreliable hours, weather conditions affect work, sometimes put in bad weather conditions

An extremely corrosive atmosphere. Corruption to hide and bury the most egregious violations is encouraged from within the upper most managerial staff and flows down stream gaining momentum with supervisory staff. One would be ill advised to gain employment in skilled trades here unless you have zero morals and not a care about dishonesty.
Points positifs
Do not outway the cons
Points négatifs
A leadership that is hard set on making the workers suffer.

Management are literally children. Hours are sporadic, you are expected to give a full day availability and you won't even be scheduled everyday. Maximum you get is 2 shifts a week, each shift is 5 hours. Management, the "multi-unit controller" is a joke. He loves insulting staff and talking behind their backs.

Since I have a volunteering position, there is no salary, but you get rewarded when you improve a guest's day, either by giving them directions or helping a child (or even an adult) learn about conservation. I would highly recommend volunteering here to anyone!
Points positifs
Free admission
Points négatifs
Hard to get shifts since there are a lot of volunteers already.

Breaks are terrible, usually get sent home after working 3 hours and you're doing more work than you should be paid for. Other than that though it's not bad, the benefits are pretty cool with benefits reaching all the way to free U.S zoo admissions.
Points positifs
great benefits
Points négatifs
doing surveys, unreliable hours
